Seema Weds Himanshu
Seema and Himanshu’s story began the way many Indian romances do; they met through family, as Seema’s sister was college friends was Himanshu’s brother. After a chance meeting, the older siblings planned to set them up, and they connected via Facebook. Just two months later, Seema and Himanshu were boyfriend and girlfriend, and after four years of happily dating, were engaged.

The surprise proposal was a recreation of a romantic getaway to NYC, one of Seema’s favorite destinations. Himanshu brought her flowers and fake plane tickets to NYC, and they eventually ended up at a local park to imitate Central Park. During dinner that evening, Himanshu whisked Seema away to a private room that was decorate with flowers, candles, photos of their adventures, and their favorite game, Scrabble. The letters on the board spelled out the big questions, and Seema was so overwhelmed and happy that she cried throughout the entire proposal, which was also secretly recorded on hidden cameras. After taking time to rejoice and share the news, they began planning the wedding themselves.

Seema’s sister was married in the previous year, and the prior experience gave Seema and Himanshu the confidence to coordinate their wedding without a planner. With the help of their friends and family, they chose a location nearby Seema’s parents in Georgia, and were able to coordinate several traditional events.

The Mehndi night took place at her parent’s neighborhood clubhouse, where they kept things casual with minimal decorations. The Vidhi was very similar and simplistic, with tents and tables sent up outside her parents’ driveways. The couple was keen on having a Patel Family welcome dinner, where they brought everyone together at an Indian restaurant to get to know each other before the hectic wedding day.

The wedding itself was very traditional, with a red and gold color scheme and red roses along the white entrance aisle. The mandap was a classic design with gold poles, red and white background, hanging crystals and red and white flower balls for an elegant touch. Every aspect of the décor was coordinated to match, from the red and gold chair bows to the aisle runner pedestals with red and white silk flower wreaths.

Himanshu arrived in his uncle’s white Jeep SUV which was beautifully decorated with red ribbons and rhinestones. His family danced alongside the car towards the hotel entrance, where both the ceremony and reception took place. After the ceremony, the DJ played a mix of upbeat Bollywood music to get the celebration started, and the newlyweds even broke out in to a surprise choreographed dance during the reception. The reception décor was peacock themes, with statues on the stage, and various shades of deep purple, green, blue and gold throughout the room to contrast the traditional red and gold themed ceremony. When the new couple entered the reception, they were linked arm in arm and enjoyed the evening of celebration with their friends and family.
